Smoke King is in the house!

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I heard about SMF from the "kitchen" section of a fishing forum I belong to, and I love it, so I decided to join up.

I bought my wife one of those small vertical charcoal smokers about 10 years ago as a present, and she still says it is one of her favorite presents yet (because I was doing the cooking, and she got to eat BBQ)! I also have a Weber kettle grill that I use. I decided to get an electric smoker, so in part based on research on this site, I am going to get a 40" MES from Sam's this week.

I have done jerky, brisket, shoulder, ribs and chicken mostly to this point, but I hope to expand my offering with the help of this website.

I live in Luckey, Ohio which is south of Toledo.

First off welcome Smoke to SMF. You'll like it here cause there are abunch of good folks here that would just love to help you out with just about anything to do with smoking. We really like to have newbies here because they can bring in a new propective to how things are done. There's nothing like a new set of eyes to give and new way to make things that little differant to make things alittle better. So I hope you know about the Qview here.
Here's a link to photobucket it's free and easy to download pictures. Then if your really new to smoking Look up the E-course.
It's also free and it will give you the basics of smoking. So after all of that you just need to go grab something to smoke and if you have any question just post them here and we will answer it quickly so you don't have any mishaps with your smoke.

Welcome to the smokiness. You will fall in love w/ the MES.
Only fault w/ it is it will make you lazy. Set it and forget it. Add chips once an hour and lay back and enjoy the day.

Thanks for the Welcomes - Now for Qview!

Thank you for all the welcomes. I guess I will jump right in with the Qview and show a beer can chicken I cooked today. Turned out ok, it got a little dry.
I am looking forward to the MES, I hope that it will standardize my cook times a little better. And it is ok that it makes me lazy, because I don't Q enough because I am too busy! So let's just hope it allows me to Q more!

Owning a MES will give you more smoking time and allow for time on the "Honey-do list". That is a bad part but you wil smoke moe,; guaranteed.

How to post Qview to Forum:

When you uploading to Photobucket I always use the Large IMG setting, 640 x 480 it is a nice size...

Everyone here enjoys seeing the Qview so be sure to post plenty of pics...

Thanks!  Got the 40" MES and an A-MAZE-N smoker and I've done some jerky and cold smoked some cheese recently.  I know, I know, where's the Qview?  Hopefully the next smoke.
